Shrimp All purpose flour Cornstarch Baking powder Salt Vegetable oil Ice Water



Prepare the Shrimp. Rinse the shrimp under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.

Step 1


Make the Batter. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Gradually pour in the ice water, whisking continuously, until the batter is smooth and has a slightly runny consistency. Make sure not to overmix the batter as this can result in a dense and heavy coating.

Step 2


Heat the Oil. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot or deep fryer until it reaches 375F. It's important to use a deep pot or fryer to avoid splattering hot oil. You can check the temperature of the oil using a candy thermometer or by dropping a small piece of batter into the oil. If it sizzles and turns golden brown in a few seconds, the oil is ready.

Step 3


Coat the Shrimp. Place each shrimp on a skewer lengthwise. Dip each shrimp into the batter, making sure it is coated evenly. Shake off any excess batter and carefully place the shrimp in the hot oil. Fry the shrimp in batches for 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the shrimp from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

Step 4


Serve and Enjoy! Remove the shrimp from the skewers and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
